Marcus Bozeman may face the wrath of both Sam and Alcide for his multiple sins.

August 28 – The big reveal of tonight’s action-packed episode is that Marnie isn’t so much an unwilling pawn of the vengeful Antonia as she is the instigator of Antonia’s ongoing wrath against the vampires. At the tolerance festival Eric and Bill have a death match during which Bill fends off the older Viking vamp with silver bullets.  Just as Eric gets the upper hand on Bill, Sookie zaps him with all her fairy might, breaking him free of Antonia’s amnesia spell. In an instant, Eric returns to his adorably snarky self and a look of dread flashes across Sookie’s face. Has she lost the man with whom she fell in love? Antonia’s spirit appears on Marnie’s face, momentarily startled by the carnage she had set in motion. Marnie composes herself and teleports her cronies and two vampire slaves out of the hotel ballroom. Jason has guilt pangs over hooking up with Jessica and asks her to wipe the experience from his memory. Insulted, she sets out to find a human to feed on. Alcide is rushing Tommy to the nearest hospital following his beat-down by Marcus’s goons when Tommy suddenly writhes in pain as his shapeshifting goes haywire and his bones crack uncontrollably. Foregoing medical attention, Tommy asks to be taken home to Merlotte’s where Sam bids a sad farewell to his repentant, trouble-making brother. Marcus Bozeman is a dead werewolf, Sam promises. Marcus, meanwhile, visits with a vulnerable Debbie, who’s feeling ignored by Alcide. Perhaps Marcus can satisfy her long-denied desire to have wolf pups? Eric tells Sookie that he still loves her but she can only respond that although she returns his love she also loves Bill. Pam, her face strangely waxen from the extreme facial treatments she underwent to camouflage Antonia’s deterioration spell, rushes into the arms of her maker, only to find him distracted by his romantic travails with Sook. Bill decides the only way to win the war with Antonia is to resort to an old-school witch burning and orders Eric, Pam and Jessica to join him in the assault on the coven. First the vampires must endure an uncomfortable day together silvered in Bill’s increasingly crowded crypt. The only thing the bickering vamps can agree on is how much they all hate the annoying Nan Flanagan, who returns their disdain in kind.

Can Nan Flanagan keep Bill in line?

Sookie pleads unsuccessfully with Bill to spare Tara, then shares Bill’s plot against the coven with Jason, Lafayette and Jesus.  Jesus decides to approach Antonia, hoping to release his old friend Marnie from her control. What he doesn’t realize is that Marnie is very much running the show, even convincing a conflicted Antonia to continue her vendetta against the vampires through Marnie’s body. It appears that years of being bullied for her Wiccan ways made Marnie just as bitter as the ancient Spanish witch.  Sookie, Jason, Lafayette and Jesus arrive outside the Moon Goddess Emporium and Jesus taps into the magic of his family’s voodoo-priest spirit to make it across a powerful –and painful—force field erected by Antonia. When he tries to get through to Marnie she informs him she is a willing partner in Antonia’s war against the vampires. Tara and Holly cast a spell to open the door to the Moon Goddess Emporium and run outside to meet Sookie but Antonia zaps the three back into the emporium in a blinding flash! Terry and Arlene find Andy’s stash of V and tell him to quit the stuff or he’ll never see their kids again. Terry and Andy later hash out some long-simmering family issues during an intervention that ends in their coming to blows. Having released their aggressions, the two make up and Andy promises to conquer his addiction. Speaking of aggression, as night falls, a dark van pulls up to the Moon Goddess Emporium and Bill, Eric, Pam and Jessica step out dressed in SWAT gear and carrying heavy artillery. Time to burn the house down!

Alcide led the parade of beefcake on the July 17 episode.

July 17 – There were enough shirtless scenes in tonight’s episode to constitute a Men of True Blood calendar. Perhaps that’s a new business idea for the folks at HBO. I’m sure a beefcake calendar would sell well among Truebies. Alex Skarsgard spends plenty of time in the buff as the endearingly amnesiac Eric. After draining Sookie’s fairy godmother Claudine, a drunken Eric craves more fairy blood, but stops himself from biting Sookie yet again. After a playful game of hide-and-seek with the freaked-out fairy, he ignores Sookie’s warnings about the impending sunrise and runs off into the woods where Sook and Alcide later find him skinny-dipping in a lake. The Viking vamp and the hunky wolf trade growls for a brief second until Eric becomes debilitated by the rising sun. Sookie urges him to race home and tucks him into his resting place in the cubby. Alcide is very skeptical about Sookie’s keeping Eric at her house but offers his support nevertheless. When he returns to Shreveport Debbie understands his need to help Sookie in her mission with Eric, for now anyway. When Sam surprises Luna at her home he meets her daughter Emma, who takes an instant liking to him. Emma’s father happens to be a very jealous werewolf, Luna warns Sam but he’s not going anywhere. Tommy, meanwhile, drops in on his mom and updates her on this progress back in Bon Temps. He’s livid when he learns his flea bag father Joe Lee was forcing her to compete in the dog fights and is overcome by the horrible hillbilly, who chains him by the throat like a leash and vows to break him in again to return to the dog fights.

Marnie gave Pam an anti-aging treatment that works in reverse.

In Hot Shot, Jason is being used as a stud service by all the she-panthers until he convinces a teenage one to set him loose. An enraged Fenton shifts to panther form and hunts Jason down but Jason drops in on the big cat from a tree branch and kills him with a makeshift stake. A second panther arrives at the scene and reveals itself to be Crystal, who’s happy to see Fenton go so she can rule over Hot Shot alongside Jason. Mr. Stackhouse tells the perturbed pussy she can keep stick it and leaves her standing naked over Fenton’s corpse. He’ll return to her at the rise of the next full moon, she promises him.  Jason collapses on the side of the road and is rescued by Jessica and Hoyt, who happen to be driving by. Nan Flanagan reads Bill the riot act over sending Eric into a den of Wiccans and warns him not to let any human blood be spilled during the inevitable vampire-witch clashes to come. He cross-examines Pam, who needles him about liking his new authority too much. Next he visits with Porzia Bellefleur’s mom and trades recollections of the Bellefleur family history, bringing the get-together to a screeching halt when he realizes that his daughter married into their clan, making Porzia Bill’s great great great great granddaughter! So much for their friends-with-benefits arrangement. Later, Bill show’s up at Sookie’s place just in time to interrupt Eric’s attempt to get a kiss out of Sookie.  When Bill tries to search the premises for Eric, Sookie ironically convinces him not to proceed by reminding him that she’s never lied to him… until now. It says a lot that Sook crossed that line in order to protect Eric from Bill. I suspect Eric will get his long-awaited kiss very soon. Marnie has a dream in which she witnesses the burning of a young witch during the Spanish Inquisition. The witch is the same one who helped her fight off Eric and begins chanting a spell with Marnie as the flames rise higher. When Marnie searches for a spell to recover Eric’s memory with Lafayette, Jesus and Tara, the Spanish witch’s spirit singles out a book with an incantation. Pam meets the witches to get the cure for Eric from Marnie but instead is afflicted with another hex from the Spanish witch that turns her into a walking, rotting corpse. That witch sure does come in handy for Marnie, doesn’t she?

Our favorite telepathic waitress/fairy Sookie Stackhouse is one lucky gal. Now that she’s dumped Bill for not being honest about his original intentions when he first met her, she’s a single woman up for grabs… literally. And we all know that she has three very sexy and diverse leading men vying for her attention this season. Bill may be on the sidelines for a while, what with his new duties as vampire king of Louisiana and all, but I’m sure he’ll keep a watchful eye on developments between Sookie and Eric, especially now that Eric has a sweet new personality that will no doubt melt the heart of the delectable Ms. Stackhouse. Complicating things further — in a very good way for viewers, mind you — is the return of the ruggedly handsome werewolf Alcide Herveaux. Alcide’s arrival last season as Sook’s watchdog was a bit overblown if you ask me. He’s hot all right, but he never really stepped up to pursue Sookie the way an aggressive wolf man would. This season I think will be another story. Hopefully we’ll see a fruition of the potential that Joe Manganiello brings to the role as a serious contender for Sook’s love. He’s a big lug who is gallantly shy around her and one would argue that his interest in her is more pure — unless werewolves crave fairy blood, too, that is. This is the premise explored in a fun cover story TV Guide has this week with interviews with Joe, Stephen Moyer and Alex Skarsgard. TV Guide’s website features a Q&A with the hunky stars that shows how Alan Ball‘s cast is as provocative offscreen as they are in character. Let’s just say much is made about private-part-covering socks and the size of Manganiello’s pectorals. It’s not be missed so check it out here and pick up this week’s issue for the full story and hot pics.
